The recent publication of the Lawyer UK 200 Annual Report shows that Russell-Cooke has one of the highest proportion of female partners amongst the top 100 law firms. The report, which was picked up in a number of national newspapers, reveals a general improvement in the ratio of male to female partners in the leading firms. This trend contrasts with other areas of business which has seen the number of women in senior positions fall.

Russell-Cooke's Managing Partner, Nigel Coates comments "We are pleased to be amongst the top five firms in this survey. We have long exceeded the average percentage of female partners and we seek to improve staff diversity in all areas through regular monitoring and review of our policies and procedures."
